I went out for a meal last night to suburban restaurant and ordered a beer (Asahi) with my meal. I was intrigued when I received a aluminium can in the shape of a bottle, twist top and all. I asked the waiter about this peculiar object and he told us that they have to replace glass bottles come June when new legislation is passed. We had a conversation about what his establishment is doing to replace the glasses for mixed spirit drinks – with plastic cups.
I haven’t heard anything about this but I recall some victims of glassing attacks calling to ban glasses in nightclubs in NSW last year. I don’t think glassing attacks are out of control in the ACT so why is this occurring?
Does anyone have any more info about this?
